I have Zalman heatsinks on the board. Its all passive
Also my PSU stealthXstream is 99% silent its inaudible, I have 7x 120mm 19DBA fans on the case and water cooling ready to put on the CPU and graphics card.
I wont be hearing anything
All im asking is, sod what XFX or nvidia say, will 1066mhz ram work on my motherboard? I would think yes, but IDK for sure.
